15th - 20th Cent. Masters
The simplicity of this work captures the spirit of the family portrait. Picasso uses delicate lines in a simple black-and-white portrait while still capturing the essence of family. Picasso's interest in children was wider than his own family. He was also involved in many educational projects that aimed to foster creativity in young people. In the 1950s, he helped to create a children's art school in Vallauris, France, where he lived for several years. The school was designed to encourage children to explore their creativity and develop their artistic skills. Picasso believed art was an essential part of education, and he saw children as the key to unlocking their potential.
